LA Blogger Surprised by Pot Stash Find of $175,000 in His Backyard

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Mark Reed, a former LA Times reporter, and avid blogger and game developer, was shocked when he took a solar technician to his backyard and found a duffel bag hidden in an unused hot tub. Inside the duffel bag were ziplock bags and mason jars filled with marijuana.

LA Weekly reports that Reed found weed worth $175,000 in the duffel bag, and immediately called the cops in front of the solar technician. Reed had called the technician as part of an accounting of the electricity use of his property. He got a shock.

Reed blogged about the find in an entertaining fashion on his blog, Factoid Labs Tumblr. His blog post, titled, “What to do with $175,000 in weed found in your backyard” is both informative and funny.

Here’s an excerpt from the post: “And some evil bastard has stuffed a bag of dope into a hole behind my house and turned my life into the backdrop of a James Ellroy noir. Any minute now, some neckless mook with steroidal shoulders and a bullet-shattered voicebox will stalk up behind and beat me bloody with his pearl-handled Desert Eagle .45”

However, Reed was polite enough to craft a note and post it on the spot of the find – “We found it and called LAPD. They confiscated it and now are watching the place. Sorry.”
